  • Group Dynamics: World Cup Profiles, vol. iv
    Algeria Belgium Korea Republic Russia Like the difficult second album this group appears initially hard to love but may prove less challenging fare than its indigestible exterior suggests If the form guides go to plan then Belgium should progress easily they are possessors of a clutch of talented players maturing together at just the right time Eden Hazard is the best of them a smoking gun of a threat on the left wing with dribbling skills a fine calibre of shot and a stone cold eye for a killer pass He s backed up by Axel Witsel a scowling henchman of a defensive midfielder liable to break your legs and spirit and Vincent Kompany a classy central defender known by coaches and media alike as a leader of men as if Manaus were Stirling Bridge and Algeria Mel Gibson s poor approximation of William Wallace York will not fall but Belgium might if they cannot figure out a way to score more goals Russia are the second favourites in Group H They have one of the tournament s finest goalkeepers Igor Akinfeev and a highly experienced central defensive partnership The coach Fabio Capello is of course the same man who took England to the brink of footballing nihilism four years ago so he should find himself right at home amongst the descendants of Dostoyevsky The absence of captain Roman Shirokov is a blow he is an action man of a midfielder and was central to Capello s utilitarian plans that nevertheless find room for the creative talents of the flashy Alan Dzagoev whose stock market crashes in form are countered by a rare Bolshoi like elegance In homage to their great novelists of centuries past Russia are ultimately a team of realists a useful quality to have in the stoic atmosphere of a World Cup campaign It s twelve years ago since South Korea s Cinderella run to the 2002 World Cup semi finals when they knocked out both Spain and Italy with the help of some ahem interestingly biased decisions Their best attacking threat is Bayer Leverkusen s Song Heung Min who has caught the ever roving glances of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the manner of an innocent Iowan sweetheart on prom night They will not be the belles of their own ball as they were in 2002 but South Korea are still technically adept enough to limber their way out of a weak group Four years ago in South Africa Algeria were a sideshow attraction of one of the ugliest World Cup groups ever as they joined England Slovenia and the USA in creating cult 90 minute exhibitions of how not to play the beautiful game To be fair it was mostly England s fault Algeria are another side for whom qualifying for a major tournament is a major achievement They are unlikely to be much more aesthetically pleasing this time around though Sofiane Feghouli provides a skilful hard running danger down the right wing For Algeria

  • Thoughts on the European Crisis: Trichet-Tricheur
    by now has durably recovered not just transferred its previous debt into a massive concealed poverty among its broader ranks but reached a state of healthy economic growth if this is true then by what means did it achieve it By its exports it would seem And the ones who did a grand part of the buying who were they The southern European countries obviously Wasn t it Germany encouraging its neighbors from the South to spend more money take more loans from German banks preferably not always necessarily at favorable overall conditions to invest freely in all kinds of enterprises sane or not which would increase the slow demand for German products new equipment and supplies providing orders for its industry and growing lucrative markets It was like this by purposely provoking just the kind of reckless immeasurably puffed up slack economic behavior which they now accuse the southern countries of more than anything like this Germany overcame the crisis it had gladly caused itself while financing its unification Instead of paying back the favor what it asks its neighbors now are sacrifices which will serve to help sustain its proper exports first of all and something more It inexorably demands to get the loans paid back in full meaning the southern countries end up paying doubly for its wealth once by buying and investing in its goods opening markets once the interest exacted to afford such deals at all Without vast loans the southern countries never could have entered in and so the narrative Trichet sells proves a huge and ugly myth This is revolting in itself and even more so when you think that since you realize these facts Trichet must realize them too And since he does what you conclude is that he s consciously dishonest So then the next thing you ll be asking is whose interests does he run except in a secondary sense likely his own What are his motives what is driving him to act the way he does You take a look at the statistics and you learn that once again whereas the wages and conditions of the workers have gone down whereas the crisis makes its victims by the millions companies of every order boost their profits on and on from year to year and money doesn t disappear we know but merely changes hands The benefits that are produced have to exist they must be somewhere Trichet is cheating he s a liar but no major driving force he seems to carry out a scheme of larger scope that lies beneath on account of some vague forces that we re not able to name in command of what is basically an ideological economic war About Arndt Britschgi Born and raised in Finland Arndt Britschgi spent the best part of his life in Madrid Spain and in 2006 completed his Ph D in Philosophy from the University of Zurich Switzerland his book on Newcomb s Paradox Free Will is available
